    1. Tracey, good morning. Thanks for stopping by over the holiday weekend.

      I'm tickled with the outcome of this Anne Hansen design.
      It was her creative talent that did it.
      Plus, the yarn blend of merino/cashmere/silk certainly helps.

      That said,
      I knit every stitch and stich pattern
      EVERY INCH OF THAT 870 YARDS IN A MONTH'S TIME
      Now that was my 'moment'.

      Gray Garden is now my current Fave of all my knitted shawls.

      Have a terrific week, Tracey

  2. Beautiful shawl! Do you wear them tied, wrapped or with an additional shawl pin?

    1. Hey, Tami

      I AM IN LOVE with this shawl.
      I,ll be wearing as a wrap,
      Or it can be criss-crossed and tie in the back to make ti appear shrug-like
      Wear with the triangle tip in front with end wrapped once 'round to hang in front

      Maybe a post with pics showing the different ways is in order
      Hey, thanks for that idea

      How's big sky/cowboy country weather now that summer is near gone?
      Should be shawl wearing time. LOL. LOL

      thanks, love when you visit my Comment section

  4. Your shawl is a piece of art you can wear. Very, Very nice.
    I like that cowl too. I may have to try this one sometime.

    1. Art
      What a cool comment, Betty.

      And, You can totally do Willow.
      It's a simple concept
      Even if it took me a bit to comprehend

      Basically it's a cowl with a Picot beginning and ending
      With rounds of Stockinette and separated with a simple, simple Lace Pattern
      With several rounds of decreases thrown in
      Making this cowl pool upon itself

      Actually a very cool concept

      Quick, Stash dive and get ready to cast on!

      Hugs

    1. Anna Marie,
      Anne designs the most awesome projects
      She is a top notch designer IMHO

      She makes us look good
      Both as knitter and wearers. :- )

      When not being worn, Gray Garden will be a wall hanging, perhaps.

      As Always
      Hugs to you

    1. As I was telling Betty in the previous comment,
      It's designs to become smaller in circumference as it's knit
      Was causes the cowl to 'pool' on 'pool' onto itself
      Making it want to hug your neck without the fuss of arranging it constantly

      Cool concept

      I love to read your blog to see what creativity has been hopping in your studio

      Thanks for visiting, Marty

  8. Your Grey Garden is ab fab! To me, there's nothing like pulling a wonderfully knitted and impeccably blocked piece off the board and inspecting it. The feeling of satisfaction you must feel when you look at that must be overwhelming.

    I haven't looked in for a while. Hope the fact that you haven't blogged since September means you're busy knitting, quilting and having too much fun to blog. Would hate if it was because something bad was happening.

    1. Joanna,
      you go it right.
      I've been concentrating on Knitting.
      Just finished a crewneck cardi
      in the wee hours of this past morning.

      And, Whoppee, it fits.

      I do plan on blogging. Just wanted to knit at least one sweater that actually fit me.
      Bought a variety of buttons today
      will pick out some and get them sewn on
      and then will photo and get something blogged.

      I've been truly loving knitting.

      Looks like the season is changing :*)

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving
      Thanks so much for checking in on me.

      love and hugs
      Gerry
